I started my begonia corms off as I do each spring, nestled into compost, placed on indoor sunny windowsills. This was 2 weeks ago and so far only 11 out of the 40 have shown signs of life (tiny pink pimples) and I'm starting to worry about them. Who said gardening was a way to relax! It is the biggest ones which have got going so far and some of them are over 10 years old. Is anyone else finding they are slow to show signs of life this year? I have started them a little earlier than usual because it has been such a cold winter and I was wanting to know they were alive and well! Any comments / suggestions or reassurance much welcomed.



Can you get them into a warmer place?. If not just wait a little longer for results.
